Lloydspharmacy and BHF are working in partnership for two
years until December 2012. Together we are pledging to raise
£250,000 for the Mending Broken Hearts Appeal through staff and
As a national community pharmacy and healthcare provider, the
health and wellbeing of Lloydspharmacy’s customers is a top
priority seeing the launch of a range of products aimed at
improving community health such as affordable blood pressure
monitors, as well as a suite of convenient professional health
check services including free blood pressure and cholesterol and
Lloydspharmacy saw partnering with the BHF as a natural
step in caring for the nation’s heart health.
With over 1,640 pharmacies across the UK, Lloydspharmacy’s
17,000 colleagues have so far raised a fantastic £122,000 towards
Beating heart disease together
The partnership launched with a company-wide Wear Red to Work
day in February 2011 and fundraising has gone from strength to
strength since then. Pharmacies held 50th Birthday parties to
celebrate the BHF’s birthday, celebrated World Heart day in
September, and have recently dressed up in their scariest outfits
for Halloween. Employees have taken part in the BHF’s famous
London to Brighton Bike Ride, Great North Run, London
Marathon and have even been jumping out of planes to raise
money. Central support colleagues have been holding product
auctions, dressing up and held a staff ball in aid of the
partnership in September.
I was very impressed by the passion and enthusiasm within your team
Staff have been able to visit the research centre at Birmingham
University to see for themselves how the money they are raising is
helping those affected by heart disease. Iqbal Gill, Regional
Director for Lloydspharmacy said: "The depth of challenges faced
and the need for ongoing support to help continue your work was
very apparent. I would also like to add, how very impressed I was
by the passion and enthusiasm within your team, both for their
individual work, but also the passion for the team as a whole".
Lloydspharmacy is at the heart of every community and is
committed to improving the health of their customers. The
partnership with the BHF is a perfect fit, and we will be
supporting each other to deliver our key campaigns during 2012.
